But at some point you also need to jump back and make sure that all of those specifics are really being picked up, about something like the relationship of the topography to these building components. Often, this is the big advantage of doing 3D models, that you start to see in the BIM Models and the other kinds of rendered models you can see those moments. But one of the troubles with those is that often they hide those little elements as well as show them by not making them clearly jump out, in terms of the color rendering or something like that, that you can feel like you've looked at it, but not really noticed it.
